Wonders Of China

My sister is studying abroad in China, where she discovered that the man who delivers water to her dorm is a multitalented fellow. Growing up, he always wanted to learn musical instruments but could never afford them, so he taught himself to imitate them instead.

Traditional Chinese instrument (a qin, perhaps?):

A horn:

A more guitar-like stringed instrument, albeit still with a very distinct Chinese sound:

I realize these videos would be more convincing if the sound was synced properly. They fell out of sync when I uploaded them. I don't really know what to do about that.

DUDE! This guy is amazing! Why is he still delivering water?? Get him on stage or something, geez!

Seriously, wow. He's got great pitch and timbre.
